‘Tchaikovsky’s familiar masterpiece is given a new lease of life with this world-premiere recording of the original 1879 published edition favoured by the composer and conducted by him at his final concert. Perhaps the most striking aspect of Gerstein’s interpretation is his ability to make the piano writing sound much lighter and more transparent than usual.’ – Erik Levi
